Industrial Stormwater Program

Michigan's industrial stormwater permit authorization requires facilities to obtain an industrial stormwater certified operator who supervises the stormwater treatment and control measures at the facility. In addition, the facility must develop a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), which describes nonstructural and structural controls implemented on-site and eliminate any unauthorized non-stormwater discharges. Sample SWPPP for Recycling Facilities

The certification process for industrial stormwater certified operators is currently ongoing in each district office.

The following are several videos produced by the EGLE on SWPPP through their Industrial program.

Introduction to the Industrial Storm Water Program (March 2009). This session provides an overview of the DEQ's Storm Water Program, including how you determine if your facility needs a stormwater permit. (Approx. 10 minutes)

Storm Water Employee Training (March 2009). Employee training is a required and essential part of an effective stormwater pollution protection program. This session explains the importance of preventing contamination from stormwater runoff and ways employees can be involved at your facility. This session is designed to meet the permit requirements for employee training. Note that this file is large; therefore, you may want to download it if you have trouble viewing the session. (Approx. 17 minutes)

What to Expect During an EGLE Storm Water Inspection (March 2009). Do you know what the EGLE will be looking for when conducting a stormwater inspection at your facility? This session explains the elements of a typical stormwater inspection. (Approx. 4 minutes)
